Language Exchange Partner

Other than booking a tutor, is it possible to find a language exchange partner (in my case English- European Portuguese) with whom to have regular real time conversations via Zoom or FaceTime to help each other improve. I have an intermediate understanding of Portuguese and a knowledge of language learning in general and am more than willing to help someone with English in exchange for the opportunity to speak Portuguese.

There is an app called HelloTalk where you can find a language partner.

I used a website called and found a wonderful language partner. It took a few tries but I found someone fantastic in short order. The website seems a little sketchy but it is fine. I just looked at it and seems like they’ve upgraded it since I was there.

I paid for a month or two there. It works better if you pay. It’s very inexpensive.

It was a little clunky to use at the time and we quickly switched to HelloTalk for ongoing communication.

HelloTalk also lets you find language partners directly. I am a little old fashioned and preferred mylanguageexchange for the finding part.

Thank you. I will give it a try. It would be a great feature to add to LingQ, too.
